Tagalongs – Peanut Butter Patties Recipe

Growing up, my favorite Girl Scout Cookies were always Carmel Delights and Peanut Butter Patties.  They’ve fancied up the names (Samoas and Tagalongs, respectively), but they’re still the same tasty goodness.  The cookie sale only comes once a year, though, and it’s tough to buy enough when you pay $4 for 15 cookies.  I’ve found an easy recipe that, while it could never pass for a Tagalong, captures its essence perfectly.  And – bonus – you need only three ingredients for success!

Unfortunately, my pictures of this project turned out to be absolutely terrible.  Embarrassing even to post.  But I PROMISE, they’re good!  Jessica over at Country Whispers made a similar recipe, and here’s her photo of the process:

Tagalongs – Peanut Butter Patties

Ingredients:

  • Ritz crackers (or similar)
  • Chocolate bark (or any meltable milk chocolate)
  • Smooth peanut butter

Directions

  1. Break chocolate into chunks.  Place in a covered slow cooker on high.  Stir occasionally.  Keep an eye on it – if you leave it alone too long, the bottom may burn.
  2. While chocolate melts, make peanut butter sandwiches.  Spread peanut butter on a cracker, then top with another cracker.  Continue until you have made desired amount.
  3. Dip the cracker sandwiches in the chocolate.  Lift with a fork; tap gently against the side of the slow cooker several times until excess chocolate is removed.
  4. Set on a wax paper-covered baking sheet to cool.  They’ll harden more quickly in a cold temperature; I set the baking sheets on the back porch for half an hour.
